      This was a Norwegian-owned chemical tanker that was hijacked by Somali pirates, SK commandos supported by fire support from a helicopter killed all of the pirates and freed the hostage crew unharmed

      The MAH-1 could be useful in these type of operations

    If you want an actual ASW helo, get MH-60R

    If you want a generalized maritime utility helo, get AW139

    If you want a cheaper H225M, get H215M

    Seems like Korea's attempt to domesticize everything. I guess Korean MIC wants to be like frog MIC to make all their own shit.

      SK seems to be pretty happy and eager to sell equipment to anyone willing to buy, and in large quantities and flexible agreements. I assume they have less political baggage or unwillingness to negotiate, like what Germongs, or Americans who seem less itnerested in licensing manufacturing.

    It's basically a Hind but with good electronics and without Russian build quality. So I'd imagine pretty good.

    IIRC Mexico showed interest in them to replace the last of their Mi17 fleet. It's pretty much certain that Mexico cannot get Russian parts now and they have really liked their EC725 which shares common architecture with the Marineon.

    Seems dumb. The apache has the same loadout already and it isn't a flying brick.

      The only advantage that the Marineon could have over the Apache is possibly better armor and can carry a squad of commandos, but the price is crazy high for a helicopter

    When was the last time they even used the fucking 70mm pods? It only serves as hardpoint filling.

      The 70mm rockets are air-to-ground: anti-material, anti-personnel, suppression, smoke, illumination, both the Apache and Viper have them also

      >what is APKWS

      Advanced precision kill weapons system, basically a laser guidance system to turn the 70mm rockets from unguided to guided rockets
